During the lunch, Will keeps it real with Milton. When Lydia says that they have already discussed whether or not their children will be bilingual and that at home, they will only speak Spanish, Will chimes in: "So it's less of a discussion. You just said it was going to be that way." He then tells her, "You're very demanding," before turning to Milton and saying, "When she wants something…" before being cut off by Lydia.
